    I have been working at Campari full-time

    Pros

    Great brands. Nice office space, with bay views. Fun people. International team. Free, quality booze.

    Cons

    Bit directionless. Silo mentality. Lack of diversity, especially at senior-level. Challenged category. Conservative (driven by head office).

    Advice to Management

    Employ some African Americans (I'm not one, BTW) and less Italians!

    I worked at Campari full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Campari for almost 1 year. The offices on Battery are beautiful. The liquor brands are excellent. The free healthy snacks and the coffee are the best things about the Campari organization.

    Cons

    The liquor brands are excellent, however the people are not. I found the workplace to be extremely stressful and poor. Managers here are myopic, micro-managers. I don't see how anybody could be happy working at this place. The accounting/finance department was particularly horrible. I haven't seen so many cliques since high school. The Asians hang only with the Asians, the whites with the whites, the ex-pats with ex-pats, the Italians with the Italians, etc. People in this office don't even have courtesy to say 'good morning', 'hello' or even smile... With all the great places to work in the Bay Area - prospective employees should not even consider working at Campari America. All the 5-star reviews on Glassdoor must be 'fake news'. There is no way anyone could highly rate this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a better workplace culture. Bring in new, younger management.

    Pros

    Great company with a growing team and positive culture. People are very friendly and collaborative.

    Cons

    Campari is quite small compared to the competition so options for growth may be limited. Company is moving in the right direction though but there are many unknowns as roles and responsibilities are being defined as they go along.

    I have been working at Campari full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture, organizational flatness, entrepreneurial atmosphere, product quality and growth potential all combine to make this an exciting and dynamic company to work for.

    Cons

    The organizational flatness can also lead to being pulled in many different directions by various stakeholders. The benefits are average and could use some "flair" for those looking to expand their horizons.

    Pros

    This review is for Campari America.

    The people are great at all levels of the company, from executives down to support staff, there is a personal level of engagement and an open door policy. There is a very high level of employee engagement with events, happy hours, etc. to be a part of. This company has great brands and doesn't show signs of slowing down more additions to the portfolio.

    Cons

    The only real downside I encountered is the corporate structure of BU/Region/Group levels wherein you see what's going on at your level but not the others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, i.e. keep the personal levels of engagement and open door policy at all levels. After all, fit is what matters most.

    I worked at Campari full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This review is for Campari America.

    The people are genuinely great - from Leadership down, there is a personal level of engagement and a feeling of "open door policy". High level of employee engagement with happy hours, team building, etc to be a part of. This company has great brands, and doesn't show signs of slowing down more additions to the portfolio.

    Cons

    Every company is dysfunctional to a degree, I found Campari America to have a limited amount of dysfunction.

    The only real challenge I experienced is the corporate structure of BU/Region/Group levels where there are routine reporting levels and this can be a bit tedious if you're involved in the process. Nothing surprising here though for a company that operates in more than 90 countries.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what is working. Add leadership / career development for a broader set of employees who express interest.

    Pros

    Beautiful office! It's been a good experience so far. I have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of talented people on exciting projects that has pushed me to stretch and grow my capabilities. The perks - lots of engaging team and wellness activities offered such as Happy Hour events, Potluck, Chair Massage, Healthy Breakfast & Snacks, Bocce Ball competitions- organized by our awesome Culture Crew and Health Squad!

    Cons

    The company continues to grow and with growth at times there is change - but that's exciting.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Great staff, nice offices and location. I enjoyed my time with the company and had wonderful colleagues. The office space was great.

    Cons

    Location of the offices was a bit out of the way. Pay was slightly low for the industry. But hey, it's not tech!

    I worked at Campari (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful office, great location, flat organization, smart & fun colleagues, fun industry

    Cons

    On US marketing team, no opportunity for promotion, very lean team, shifts in strategy, no leadership vision, no accountability for senior leadership. So many talented people have departed the company in the last year for lack of development opportunities or have been forced out due to internal politics. There is a recent culture of CYA (cover your xxx).

    Advice to Management

    No one respects current marketing (US) leadership. Promote from within, develop & invest in your people, diversify senior management from Italian, white males. Set a strategy and stick to it and give your team the appropriate resources.
